Hey guys. So this is my first build log. It's also my first Case Mod and first Loop. I've been planning on starting this build log for a while but have changed my mind so many times on how I'm gonna put it all together. I basically bought my HAF XB back in late May or Early June, it was originally gonna be a Haswell build but i decided to wait for IB-E. Then when IB-E released, I had the 290x and RIVE BE right around the corner so more waiting......

In the mean time, my plans for my mod and custom loop have changed soooooo many times.

Main Components:
4930k (Purchased)
RIVE BE (Purchased)
Asrock x79 Extreme6/GB (Temporary while RIVE BE is RMA)
3 x AMD r9 290x's (1 bought. 2 to go...)
4x8GB G.Skill Trident X 2400MHz CL10 Kit
SSD's - 2 x Samsung EVO 250GB in Raid0 (1 bought. 1 to go...)
HD's - WD Black 4TB HDD
Optical - Silverstone FP58 w/ Panasonic Slotload Bluray
Antec HCP-1300 Platinum Sleeved with LC Telios White/Gray/Red & Black Fusion

Cooling: (All Purchased)
Alphacool XT45 360
XSPC EX360
Alphacool ST30 240
Alphacool UT60 120 (White Edition)
Apogee Drive II (For Now)
XSPC Photon 170 Res (For Now)
Aquaero 6 Pro
7 Gentle Typhoon AP-00's (2150RPM)
3 Phobya NB E-Loops (Red & Black 1600RPM) (Red LED's Modded In)
3 Gentle Typhoon AP-15's
Koolance 360 Shroud
Aquacomputer G1/4 High Flow Flowmeter
Phobya Inline Male/Female Matte Black Temp Sensors

Planned:
EK Supremacy Clean CSQ Copper/Plexi (Purchased)
Either Dual 35x's or Dual Aquacomputer D5's. Dunno if i can make the room for the D5's with all my other mods
Decided to give acrylic a shot for my tubing. Haven't ordered anything for it yet.
Undecided on Coolant/Dye
Also considering either trying to fit 1 or 2 short Aqualis Reservoirs (Vertical) or FrozenQ Tri-Spirals (Horizontal)

I'll be painting my rig White as the main color with Red as a 2nd color. Undecided if I'll use a 3rd color and if that 3rd color would be Gray/Silver or Black

This is roughly what it should look like from the front when I'm done.
Except I plan on putting a MNPCTech Overkill 3D Grill on the front of the shroud, and the fans will be red with red LED's.

I already have like the next 10 pages of update pics already taken. I have a TON of pics in a folder dedicated to this build. I just gotta sort through and choose the best ones so bear with me guys thumb.gif

My front mounted 360 will have the Phobya E-Loops in Push and GT AP-15's in Pull
My bottom 360 will have GT AP-00's in Push
My Side mounted 240 will have GT AP-00's in either Push or Pull
My UT60 120 right now is gonna have GT AP-00's Push/Pull. Might put an LED fan on the rear for Pull, haven't decided yet.

The reason I'm putting all that out there right now is because the main thing's i need to order right now and am having trouble deciding on are my 2 x 360's and 240.

Obviously I have space restrictions because i wanted a portable rig. Pretty much every rad I'm gonna have in there except the 120 will be the result of my trusty Dremel biggrin.gif
My front mounted rad needs to be 398mm long or less if I wanna be able to clip in the front panel. That pretty much limits me to either BI GT Stealth, EK Coolstream XT, Feser Admiral, Magical (HAHAHA Had to leave that scratched out cuz it made me laugh when i noticed) Magicool Extreme 360, or XSPC EX360. If I went with something like the Admiral I'd have to make some major mods. Right now 35-40mm seems to be the sweet spot if i wanna go easy on myself, so I'm thinking of going with the EX360

My bottom 360 has enough room for a 45-50mm rad and has enough room length wise. I'm thinking of using an XT45 just because it's gonna be pushing against the back of my chassis so I'm planning on having a Drain Plug and maybe QDC coming out of the front or bottom ports with the loop running through the top ports

My 240 needs to be around 37mm or less and the shorter the better on the 120mm axis. I'm leaning towards the EX240 Multiport because that area will be a little cluttered and the extra ports might be useful.

Any input on anything I just said will be more than welcome. Choosing and ordering my rads has been holding me up from completing alot of the mods I've already started.

Thanks!! It'll be an even cooler name when you see why it's gonna look like a Triclops biggrin.gif
The 290/290x is "Supposed" to be out by the end of the month just like the RIVE BE

isn't it bad to use a fan for push and a different fan for pull
for example, a fan pusing more air than fan pulling air
The fan pulling air will break down sooner

Thats my guess, im not sure if its okay

Martin's actually talked about that a few times. No it's not bad as long as they're not far apart in RPM range. More than 500 could become problematic. Actually with noisy fans, it's been known to help by matching them with different fans. Also the NB E-Loops are ONLY meant for Push. The blades bulge out at the front. When you use em in pull you need to use a shroud (which i do anyway) or they'll hit the fins. Also they're alot noisier in pull. Most people with E-Loops running Push/Pull match em up with something different

I needed the Phobya E-Loops for the "TRiCLOPS" effect on the front. They have the Red Transparent Blades and I'm installing LED's in them. They'll have the Koolance 3 Fan Shroud around them and MNPCTech Overkill 3D 360 Grill in front of them. Should look tight when i finish it.

BTW, I already have like the next 10 pages of update pics already taken. I have a TON of pics in a folder dedicated to this build. I just gotta sort through and choose the best ones so bear with me guys thumb.gif
